I also have a higher FSB now, because I have new memory (2x512MB Infineon PC3200 instead of 2x256MB noname PC2700) but I didnt benchmark, because I am still testing. The highest clock speeds that were prime-stable for at least 6 hours were:
I didnt test the other multipliers yet. I am still testing the 11.5 multi, it wasnt stable at 205MHz (crashed after about 13 1/2 hours) and I didnt test 11.5x204 yet. Maybe I will get more than 213MHz w/ the multi 11 or a lower multi.

Yes: When your FSB runs at 800MHz QDR, it really runs at 200Mhz (it only has the performance, which an SDR bus would have at 800MHz), but when you run your CPU@3124Mhz, your FSB will not be 200MHz (800MHz QDR), it will be 240MHz (960MHz QDR). If your memory runs at 466MHz DDR, it really runs at 233MHz, so you have a memory:FSB ratio of 7/6 or 116,6%. If you use the same ratio on 240MHz FSB, you have your memory at 280MHz (560MHz DDR). So I am sure, that you dont use this ratio, when you oc, because no PC3700 memory runs at 280MHz. You can still run your memory at sync at 240MHz, because nearly every PC3700 memory goes up to 240MHz. If you run your memory faster than the FSB, you dont have any advantage in performance, because i.e. 400MHz DDR dual channel has the same data transfer rate as the 800MHz QDR bus.
